important one is that 20 years ago i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me. and so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. you know, four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system had frozen up. and because of the resilience and the determination of the american people we've begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we've still got a lot of work to do. and so the question here tonight is not where we've been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in education and training. i thin

both men have the facts down cold. one of them, after all, has been president for four years. the other has been running for longer than that. barack obama and mitt romney are both nearing the end of intense debate prep, and coaching sessions. and at this point, they're designed either to create or prevent that moment that we've all seen that can somehow change the race. and with millions of americans watching these debates like a kind of super bowl of american politics, the stakes are high as the two men face each other in denver, just two days from now. we begin tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell in our d.c. newsroom. andrea, good evening. >> good evening, brian. it is the political super bowl, or perhaps the world series. mitt romney, behind in all battleground polls for the last three weeks, now has the most to gain from a game-changing night. and the most to lose if he doesn't turn it around. as the candidates head to debate camp, rolling up their sleeves, getting down to work, each claims to be the underdog. >> governor romney, he's -- he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> he pla

plans forward. they want to know what the president will do over the course of the next four years. and how exactly we'll get there. >> reporter: with polls showing mr. obama leading in the crucial swing states, top aides have encouraged the president to be himself, don't change what's working, one senior adviser said. for his part romney's advisers say he's prepared, that he just needs to convey his message clearly on the biggest stage of his political career. and throughout the primary debates, brian, mitt romney would write his father's name, george romney, on the top of his notepad. his father, of course, being his inspiration. he would also write one other letter, "o" to remind him to focus on president obama. but tonight when they are finally side by side, he probably won't need any reminders. >> peter alexander in the hall, thanks for starting us off tonight. >>> now over to our political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd also at the venue tonight. chuck, what's the task for both sides, for both men? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that both campaigns

, without increasing the deficit. now to president obama's claim that he'd only raise taxes on upper income people to where they were under president clinton. >> i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year, that we should go back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president, when we created 23 million new jobs. >> what president obama is leaving out there is that there are new taxes in the health care law, specifically that would target high-income earners. in fact, they would be paying a higher rate than they did under president clinton. >> reporter: finally, governor romney on the deficit under the obama administration -- >> the president said he'd cut the deficit in half. unfortunately, he doubled it. trillion-dollar deficits for the last four years. >> when romney accuses the president of doubling a deficit, he's stretching the truth a bit. obama inherited a $1.2 trillion deficit when he came into office. you in the president increased that to $1.4 trillion deficit, but the deficits have stayed just under that. they've stayed very high, but they've been just under that
